Create

To cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary processes. To evolve from one's own thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention.

Creating dental restorations is a profession that is not often known to the general public. Dental technicians are the creators, the engineers that design restorations to mimic and restore natural teeth. They must study every line, curve, and contour of natural teeth. Translucency, opacity, chroma, length, width, and function are a few of the many features that must be examined and understood to create the desired outcome. The ultimate goal of a dental technician: to achieve results so natural that their work goes undetected by others. This profession requires a great deal of attention to detail, tiny details. So from the hands of a model technician to the hands of a ceramist or the mind behind digital design, dental technicians and dentists together create and restore health to patients, giving many around the world a reason to smile.
